Tony was my first student. I met him when I arrived in Bissett in September 1969. He was at the school when I arrived on the Labour Day Monday. Over the years we kept in touch. He was a regular at the Cranberry Portage bonspiel. He was always a welcome guest in our home. Tony had a definite opinion on many subjects' especially politics. I appreciated his love of life and people in general. My best to the brothers who I know cared for their older brother. RIP Tony. - Posted by: Dan Reagan (friend) on: Mar 18, 2023
